Severe degenerative arthritis of ankle and subtalar joints can be managed by tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using an intramedullary nail. This technique offers a painless and a functional limb. In parallel with recent improvements in implant technologies, satisfactory outcomes in tibiotalocalcaneal fusions have been attained in appropriate clinical practices in the assistance of biomechanical studies.
